"Stirred In Space"


Abstract modern art is the type of design I was trying to achieve here, which I have entitled "Stirred In Space". Parts of it I like, but it still seems to need something. I'll keep working on it.

For those who are curious about how I did it, I used Node Stitch chains. Georgia Seitz has a wonderful page describing several types of tatted chains here.

I also used Catherine Wheel Joins. Debbie Arnold has excellent instructions on this type of join. Her website is here - scroll down to find the link to Catherine Wheel join.

Back to the drawing board for me!

Almost industrial looking, too, I think. Nice design.

Thanks for the encouragement.
I'm still working on improving this design.

I found the black earwires at another Etsy seller, EverLuxe.

Love this design. Reminds me of the doo wop style hotels or the Jetson/space styles of the fifties and sixties. Hence the title stirred in space, I guess.
I hope you will be publishing the pattern for sale.
I'd love to do these.

One more thought -- watching the subsequent versions emerge is fascinating!

The modern art experiments are stunning!
